GTA, one of the world’s largest travel wholesalers, has appointed Vicki Theophilou as Business Development Manager to build relationships with the wholesale travel trade in Canada.
Vicki will position GTA as the leading supplier to wholesale clients and tour operators throughout Canada, working closely with colleagues worldwide to deliver unrivalled customer service.
She joins GTA from TMR Holidays where, as commercial director, she launched the brand to the Ontario marketplace forging relationships with national chains, consortiums, agents and tourist boards.
Previous management roles at Total Vacation, Globelite Travel Marketing and Solways Holidays have helped her develop destination knowledge across Asia, the Caribbean, Central and South America, Mexico and the USA.
During more than 24 years at national leisure tour operator Air Canada Vacations, she led the central Canada sales team to generate more than 60% of total company sales.
Elizabeth Crabill, GTA’s Vice President for Sales and Marketing in the Americas, says: “With decades of Canada market experience, Vicki has a well established reputation in the Canadian travel trade and I am delighted to welcome her to GTA.
Canada’s travel trade relies on our expertise and ability to negotiate great offers on top of the best prices possible, in destinations their clients want to sell to travelers, with top rated technology to deliver our vast range of product.
Vicki’s experience will allow her to provide a variety of solutions to the wholesale trade, ensuring we remain Canadian clients’ first point of call for product, price and technology.
New Business Development Manager for GTA in Canada, Vicki Theophilou, adds: “I’m enormously pleased to join GTA and help educate Canada’s travel industry about GTA’s value and the rich variety of accommodation, services, attractions and experiences we offer in destinations worldwide.”
